Last night was absolutely AMAZING. Two-hundred and fifty women came out to the meet-up turn curly soirée! I was totally overwhelmed by the sheer number of gorgeous heads in one room… everyone was so beautiful and sweet, sharing all of their hair secrets, favorite products, and experiences with natural hair. I talked so much last night I woke up this morning to a sore throat! Craziness. Jessicurl was there, and so was Michelle Breyer, co-creator of NaturallyCurly.com. Mae of NaturalChica.com, Cassidie of Naturalselectionblog.com, ItsMsHeatherNicole from Youtube, MahoganyKnots, Organic Root Stimulator, Shea Moisture, and Huetiful Hair Steamer were in the house as well! Thank you ATLiens for showing me such a wonderful time. I’ll definitely be back. Here’s the view:
Mae and Heather!

Got pics from last night? Send them!!!
WOW!!! OMG! Had a blast! and yes Nikki, I will take the title as one of the Natural Hair Photographers!! LOL!! Great times being able to speak with three of my idols: YOU, MAE, HEATHER AND MEETING new natural divas!! Loved the event and the spirit in the place…Who said Black Women cant get together and embrace each other, cause we did!!!
We just got back to MD from our weekend in ATL, and saw this today. Had a fantastic time at the meet up. My 10 y.o is going to freak when she sees our picture posted on the site. What an amazing opportunity to show her the beauty of natural hair. She loved being at the meet-up and was ultra-excited to meet Baby G (who is an absolute doll.) Thank you Nikki!
It looks like yall had so much fun. Mad I missed it. See you in April.
Beautiful pix! Great turn out. Wish we could have a meet up further south— the dirty, dirty south in the vicinity of MIA. 🙂
…beautiful gorgeous lovely awesome.
love all the fab hair going on.
sorry i missed it.
I was so inspired to attend the meet up in atlanta. I've been journaling my hair journey as it has been one of spiritual transformation and newness for me! I look forward to the next meet up in the Triangle so I can attend! Thanks for doing you and creating this forum! 🙂
Wow, what a great turnout! So many familiar faces. One day I'm going to meet all you ladies, you, too, Nikki! 🙂
I second the DMV suggestion. I can never seem to make the one's here and I don't know that they're ever this big. I suggest one in DC. Like at Busboys and Poets. Great location and I have a million and one curlies in the U street area.
I had a great time. My photos will soon be available on Fotki but for now, view them at: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=607946&id=799030463&l=37b446f8ae
Wow everyones hair looks looks so healthy and pretty. Gosh wish I could have been therr.
Omg Nicki everyone looks beautiful and omg tell heather to come back to youtube! She's really missed.
This event looked like so much fun! I glad to see Heather for real tho…as well as so many other ladies from curlynikki and YouTube! I feel like I know them all….yaay for this event! We def need to have one like this in NY
So glad you guys enjoyed the event, and thanks for the kind words! We had SO MUCH FUN! And yes, all the babies… I was in heaven. Watching Gia observe other little ones was priceless.
And so sorry MahoganyKnots.com! I posted your link up above… in the top and above our pic together!
Thanks again ladies!
Ok, so I love the fact that baby g still has her hospital pacifier! My two month old loves that big green thing, no other one will do! Fortunately I just found the same kind in pink and purple so we shall see!! Glad we are not the only ones… the event looked absolutely FAB, so much beauty and style, LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!
Oh….that looked like so much fun!!! You should consider having one in the DMV—DC, Maryland, and Virginia. We have lots of curlies!!!
Nikki, it was so great to meet you in person. I had a great time at Livingston and the turn out was great. So many familiar faces and new faces and fly hair all in one room. That's natural hair LOVE! I hope enjoyed your time in my city. Come back to see us soon!

This looks like tons of fun.
You ladies are so darn beautiful, the babies are beyond cute and the place is fab. I sooo bad wish I could join..but for now, I'll just enjoy the pics and hope for more of them *hint, hint*
Natural hair beauty is so effortless, sexy, classic, down-to earth, elegant and versatile, thank you for showing me this again. Much love!
…oh and miss you Ms. Heather Nicole on YT. It was so nice to "see" you. Glad that you're doing well.
How awesome. I lived in Hotlanta 13 years ago but never experienced this. Then again I wasn't natural at the time. Looks like babies were the accessory du jour. Everyone looked fab. I noticed Fglen and her cute little one too. Great job Nikki you raised the bar again!
Well NYC kinda had a little something at KBB store in Bklyn on Friday hosted by taren916. But it would be nice to have you visit sometime like others have hinted.
WOW…Congrats on the out come CN…Even though Every one was just absolutely beautiful…..The curly babys stole the show…xoxoxo to them all!
Absolutely beautiful pictures! Nice turn out!
Wow, Nikki, there's a mobile app coming out?! It never ceases to amaze me just how big CN is getting! Yay to your success!
Everyone looks great. I agree about the NY event. We need one soon =)
Very nice pics! GBaby is adorable! I especially love the one with her resting her head on your chest with that pacifier! Also, I see she likes "Goodnight Moon!" My daughters LOVE that book!! If you don't have it, you have to get "Please, Baby, Please" by Spike and Tonya Lee. All three of my girls enjoyed that book as babies. Lauryn, who's only 14 mos old, actually brings it over to me to read to her.
Congrats on the successful meet up Nikki. I'm lovin all the pics. Seems like lots of fun and great hair all in one room. I love the pics of Mae and Heather!!!!Two of my you tube favs. Keep the pics coming Nikki.
Agree with all the others NYC meet up STAT!!!
Aww i love everyone's hair! the babies shown are adorable.
I propose an NYC meet up!!!!!!!
@ Anon 3:08..yes, that is me and my little Naomi..thank you so much for the compliment..It was such a good time
Curlies unite! Lol! Amazing turnout, I'm with others, there needs to be a NY/NJ event to show how we represent, lol! So happy so many established businesses and curlies came through, congrats.

Is that you on picture #8? and if that is you, wow you look so pretty with your little one in that picture. But it looks like everyone had a blast at the event. All the adults and babies are looking like that had fun.
What an awesome turnout! Thanks for sharing with those of us who couldn't attend.
I didn't know that Nikki created the Shea Moisture line??
Nikki, you have a very sweet and genuine personality. I love you even more now after meeting you in person. Thanks for hosting the event and please come back to see us! Everyone was so beautiful. Lots of motivation to keep on my jourey.
I has a great time and thoroughly enjoyed meeting so many fabulous women. Nikki, you are awesome!!
…oh yeah, And the little kiddies in pic 20 are so adorable! I hope I didn't leave any other ones out! LOL I kinda hate that my little siblings are not little anymore! They are growing up TOO FAST! LOL
I <3 happy lil' brown babies! I just want to squish their faces with kissy-kisses!
Did Heather Nicole say why she isn't doing videos anymore or if she is coming back? I loved her channel (cute southern accent) but I know in her last couple of videos she made it known that she was going through some things. After that her channel went silent. Glad to see that she is doing well!
Everyone at the event is looking fabulous. So nice that so many people could turn out. :o)
im telling you atlanta is natural hair central! you should have a road show, bring it to New York and Chicago!
In the last pic, you look like baby Gia's big sister! Gosh, your hair is SOOOO FREAKIN' LOOONG O_O OMG! Your baby is such a blessing! I can only imagine how much joy she has brought to your lives!
The baby in pic #8 is an absolute DOLL! Y'all make me wanna pop one out now, LOL! Everyone looks fabulous!
I only live 2 1/2 hours away from Atlanta, me and my baby girl should have taken the road trip. Looks like you girls had a great time and Gia gets more adorable with every pic!
